J.K.’s Cuvée Winterruption Farmhouse Hard Cider, $7.99/Christmas Sale $6.99: This organic cider has maple and apple on the nose with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. The maple comes through nicely on the mid-palate and the finish is clean and dry. Would be good on ice or steeped.

Prairie The Beer That Saved Christmas Oak Aged Old Ale Cider and BeersPrairie The Beer That Saved Christmas, $12.49/Christmas Sale $11.49: This 10% ABV ale, aged in oak barrels, has an earthy nose, accompanied by roasted malts, some sweet malts, barrel and cocoa. It has a rich, full bodied malty palate with nice oak and finishes long.

He’Brew Jewbelation Reborn, $12.99/Christmas Sale $11.99: 17 malts and 17 hops created this 17% ABV “Chosen Beer.” Hops and alcohol heat on the nose, with some herbal spiciness and malt roast.

Paradox Figgy Puddin’, $11.49/Christmas Sale $10.49:  This seasonal shows a slightly tart red wine barrel nose, accompanied by a lightly fruity and tart body (due to the figs, dates and cherries with which it is brewed) and a refreshingly clean and balanced finish. $1 Off all other Paradox Beers!

  1. Dear Coal Train Wines,

    I tried a Widmer beer in Minneapolis last week and I’m pining for it – do you carry Widmer beers and if so, do you have Downward Spiral please? It’s delicious!

    Many thanks,
